ftrace: restructure tracing start/stop infrastructure
Impact: change where tracing is started up and stopped Currently, when a new tracer is selected via echo'ing a tracer name into the current_tracer file, the startup is only done if tracing_enabled is set to one. If tracing_enabled is changed to zero (by echo'ing 0 into the tracing_enabled file) a full shutdown is performed. The full startup and shutdown of a tracer can be expensive and the user can lose out traces when echo'ing in 0 to the tracing_enabled file, because the process takes too long. There can also be places that the user would like to start and stop the tracer several times and doing the full startup and shutdown of a tracer might be too expensive. This patch performs the full startup and shutdown when a tracer is selected. It also adds a way to do a quick start or stop of a tracer. The quick version is just a flag that prevents the tracing from taking place, but the overhead of the code is still there. For example, the startup of a tracer may enable tracepoints, or enable the function tracer. The stop and start will just set a flag to have the tracer ignore the calls when the tracepoint or function trace is called. The overhead of the tracer may still be present when the tracer is stopped, but no tracing will occur. Setting the tracer to the 'nop' tracer (or any other tracer) will perform the shutdown of the tracer which will disable the tracepoint or disable the function tracer. The tracing_enabled file will simply start or stop tracing. This change is all internal. The end result for the user should be the same as before. If tracing_enabled is not set, no trace will happen. If tracing_enabled is set, then the trace will happen. The tracing_enabled variable is static between tracers. Enabling tracing_enabled and going to another tracer will keep tracing_enabled enabled. Same is true with disabling tracing_enabled. This patch will now provide a fast start/stop method to the users for enabling or disabling tracing. Note: There were two methods to the struct tracer that were never used: The methods start and stop. These were to be used as a hook to the reading of the trace output, but ended up not being necessary. These two methods are now used to enable the start and stop of each tracer, in case the tracer needs to do more than just not write into the buffer. For example, the irqsoff tracer must stop recording max latencies when tracing is stopped. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
